Daniela has been part of the OCVEH emergency team since the winter of 2016. She graduated from the University of Ottawa with an Honours Degree in Biology, and later attended Algonquin, from which she graduated in 2014 as an RVT. 

She loves the variety and challenge of working emergency, as it keeps her on her toes and helps her keep learning. She loves to snuggle all the cute fluffies who come to the Animal Emergency. Visits to emergency are often stressful for owners, and Daniela strives to provide excellent quality care, a compassionate ear and emotional support in times of need so that clients have the best experience possible.

In her spare time Daniela is a part-time aerial silks and hoop instructor and performer. She lives with her Pitbull and with her partner, who puts up with her loud crazy Italianness.
